Did you know there's a volcano in Indonesia that spews blue fire, cathedrals made of salt in Colombia and Poland or a 17,000-pound balls of twine sitting just outside of Minneapolis? Weird and Amazing Travel is your gateway to people, places and things in the world that will shock, delight and, ideally, inspire you to travel.


I'm the creator and editor of Leave Your Daily Hell, one of the most popular travel blogs on the Internet. When I'm not inspiring, informing, entertaining and empowering prospective travelers, I'm contributing to a spate of other publications, including The Huffington Post, CNN Travel, USAToday Travel, Details Network and Business Insider.


I graduated from the University of Tampa in 2006, with a B.A. in Creative Writing, but I've received the majority of what I consider to be my education by way of my extensive world travels.
